Summary: Parallels launched Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure (PACI). PACI enables hosters and service providers to deploy, provision, automate, manage and bill cloud infrastructures services (more specifically raw infrastructure-as-a-service – IaaS). The virtual servers are built with the use of both the Parallels container and hypervisor-based virtualization technologies. Parallels enables cloud features such as pay-as-you-go billing, automated and fast provisioning and destroying of virtual machines, self-service and on the fly elasticity. A unique characteristic is the ability run both container and hypervisor-based cloud servers in the same physical environment.
